Sopranos: What The Finale’s Cat Really Means And How It Links To Christopher

Paulie Gualtieri was just one Sopranos character who resented the close relationship between Christopher and Tony. Picked by Tony as a potential successor, Christopher’s dreams of being a Hollywood filmmaker – and his issues with substance abuse caused tensions with Tony, which eventually led to his death at his former mentor’s hands. Meanwhile, Paulie relished being able to put Christopher in his place throughout the series, but he’s genuinely upset by Christopher’s death, implying a closeness between the pair. The ginger cat in Satriale’s is another stray who’s got into the inner sanctum through closeness to Tony, so it’s easy to see how Paulie draws the connection with Christopher.

But Paulie’s links between the cat and Christopher go much further than mere metaphor. Through ghostly visions, dream sequences, and spiritual apparitions, David Chase and his writing team regularly added a supernatural layer to The Sopranos. One of these visions occurs in the final season, Paulie sees the Virgin Mary at the Bada Bing, something he admits to Tony in their last conversation in the finale. Tony laughs this off with a joke about shrines, knowing of Paulie’s well-documented belief in the supernatural. Across the series, Paulie spoke of his fear of death, and the afterlife and even visited a psychic, who appeared to know too much about his past murders. Despite laughing off Paulie’s strip club vision, Tony is visibly shaken by the idea the cat could be the reincarnation of Christopher. It’s clear that despite being ginger rather than black, the cat is a bad omen for both Paulie and Tony, a reminder of both their past transgressions and their own mortality.
